Did you read the title? Because I really do think I'm melting.
It's really not that hot here at all but heat is relative. Two days ago the high was 64F. Today it's 82F and the humidity is thick enough to feel like the air I'm breathing is a hundred times heavier than yesterday. It's gross. Hell, I'm gross. I've turned on the air-conditioner and hopefully it will cool down and dehumidify quickly so I can get my afternoon run in. Let me rephrase that. I've turned on the air-conditioner and hopefully it will cool down and dehumidify quickly so I can get my afternoon run in comfortably. I'm making myself do it even if it doesn't cool down. I will not be fat anymore.
Know what's good on a hot summer-like day? Cold food. I'm not usually a big salad person, but I love a crisp salad on a steamy day. Thanks to Christmas 2010, I just harvested my first bag of salad greens out of my Aerogarden. I also have some very fragrant basil growing. They're only 2 weeks old, so i only trimmed what I could to eat but they are thriving and delicious.
I'm looking forward to a time when I can order a meal in public without thinking the server is judging me for not ordering a salad. Maybe I'll get lucky and this heat will help me melt off a few extra pounds. I don't know how and yes, I do know it's wishful thinking. Miracles happen sometimes though. I can use and help I can get though. This fat thing... it's no fun.
